, the president was conciliatory towards mitt romney, mitt romney, for his part, has laid low with his family since the loss. but today, his post-campaign remarks are surfacing. he was on a conference call with major donors today. what he said about what went wrong is already getting some attention tonight. nbc's peter alexander just back after covering the campaign, here with us in the studio. >> reporter: brian, good evening, as you know this conference call just wrapped up hours ago, governor romney blamed this defeat on what he described as big gifts that the president had given to some of the democrat's most loyal voting blocki blockinging block. he called it the old play book rule with specific interest groups. he said with regard to young people, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. he added free contraception was very big with college-aged women. and finally, he said obama-care made a difference, likewise with hispanic voters, health care was a big plus. he is scheduled to meet with top advisers tomorrow night. one thing is sure in terms of his future. he said the do
that romney failed i think in part because no one really knew where he stood. while he was lying about his record, lying about obama, republicans and democrats this election agreed on one thing. no one could say for sure what' romney was on on any specific point. if he had been a starter candidate, he might have won. if the republican party had a slicker version, more human version of romney, alessa beta version, they might have gone further and won. that was lucky for the democrats. tavis: you have given me a wonderful segue which is now what the future of the gop is. what kind of person into the future, i have -- do they have to put up given the demographic shifts in this country? >> they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. their first impulse is marco rubio for president because we need latinos and he is a cuban- american. that put him up there. i think they're going to have to realize that if they really want to be effective they're going to have to change some policies. they cannot find biffar managers with it -with existing policies. there will have to cling to
then they all pull behind mitt romney. all part of the "the obama hate machine" which i wrote about in my latest book. president obama is re-elected. so you think they say okay. he's our president now. let's move forward. uh-huh. oh, no. tea party members in 20 states actually have filed petitions with the white house now they want the stateless to secede from the union because they're not happy with the election. give me a freakin' break. i thought by the way i thought secession was you weren't suppose to the allow that to happen. i thought we fought a civil war over that. believe it or not pesks have been filed with the white house -- they have this thing at the white house, if you have 25,000 signatures on a petition, the white house has promised that they will respond. so tea partiers in -- get this, alabama, arkansas, colorado, florida, georgia indiana kentucky louisiana michigan, mississippi, missouri, montana new jersey new york, north carolina north dakota, oregon south carolina, tennessee and texas have a

(vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks or jumping into the market he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense from td ameritrade. >> eliot: it's tough to be a car enthusiast in the era of global warming. that may change with your number of the day. 3.9 seconds is how fast the tesla model s goes from zero to 60 miles per hour. this helps to explain why it just became the first all electric car to win "motor trend" magazine's car of the year. even beating competition such as the porsche 911. "motor trend" isn't just being politically correct. the model s got this award because of electric or no

. >> that sounds on what mitt romney lost on. >> it's part of sim southern bowles. -- simpson-bowles. >> what dick durbin has signed off on. >> jonathan i want to go back to you, ezra klein has a good analysis in "the washington post" about what kind of game of hardball we're playing here. the president announced $1.6 trillion he wants to raise in new revenue more than you can feesbly as tim geithner put it raise than just closing loopholes. that is a reputation of what john boehner suggested in the days since the president has been re-elected. >> that's totally right. a key point, the simpson-bowles tax idea is kind of a magic pony, right. everyone agrees in the ab instruct, we can bring down the rates, close loopholes and deductions and raise revenue. if that's such a wonderful idea how come it's only come up now. how come no one has done it. the reason is because it's really, really hard politically. once you get into the specifics. if you're trying to tie all the revenue to this abstract tax reform idea you're going to get into a position where the revenue is about never going to happen becaus
group of donors. romney arguing that president obama won in part because of gifts the obama prin strags had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president's campaign did is focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community. here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is, he gave them two things. one, he gave them a big gift on immigration, with the d.r.e.a.m. act and amnesty program. >> reporter: for hispanics, he talked about obama care, the president's heath care plan being a gift too. he talked about free contraceptives, very big with college-age women. sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realized he'd lost, telling his closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming an entitled society. that some americans are asking for government to solve
. they are part of the economy. the specific policy mr. romney is talking about -- affordable health care, reformation of the student loan processes, those things help our economy long-term. >> these are policies that have been advocated for decades. i think that clearly fdr and others were not giving out gifts 60 years in advance for president obama. >> exactly. >> james peterson and nia malika henderson. thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> coming up, president obama was tough today. he's also said that dirty word that republicans just hate -- compromise. that's next.

, "this would look good, to allow a protest." there's parts that say, "we can't tolerate this. we're going to arrest people." >> did it strike you during the campaign, jim, that neither romney nor obama mentioned human rights in china? >> they didn't, which is part of the -- nobody mentioned climate change, they didn't mention the supreme court. there's all sorts of things. you could write 20 books on things that didn't come up in the campaign. on obama's side, in a way, he didn't need to because his policy, the chinese know his policy is as it has been for the u.s., we want to work with china, but there's things we're not going to give up. we're going to, the president will meet the dalai lama, even though you hate that. we will send arms to -- sell arms to taiwan, even though you view that as casus belli, et cetera. so i think obama could say, "okay, i've had four years of a balanced approach." romney, his currency -- bluster was sort of proxy for saying, you know, he would be blustery in all ways. >> tough on china currency manipulation. first day in office, he would accuse them of -- b
it clear mitt romney would have it. i don't think he's got a job in mind for mitt romney, but one of the things the president may have been talking about that romney suggested during kamt pain the campaign is the question of capping deductions, which has become part of -- >> capping deductions for rich people. >> for wealthy people. and that was mitt romney's way of saying i'm for the middle class. >> the president believes in his words that's progressive. that's a progressive idea. >> he's happy to adopt it. he's not ready to get rid of raising rates either at this point, but he's happy to adopt it. >> he said he would like to talk to mitt romney about jobs and growth, economic growth, anything that could help the middle class. president said middle class, 12, 15 times and he said has a mandate to help the middle class. that's president obama, he's absolutely right. that's his mandate. that's the mandate that voters gave him last week. >> we can agree to disagree on that. but i think romney campaign is now working on pulling a great tv commercial out of that run and swing state,
thing that everybody understood, was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that was an important debate and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction we have to do it in a balanced way. the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and say, here's something we agree on, we don't want middle class taxes to go up, let's go ahead and lock that in, that will be good for the economy, it will be good for consumers, it will be good for businesses, it takes the edge off of fiscal cliff, and let's commit ourselves to the broader package of deficit reduction that includes entitle

and it's getting serious. the obama campaign demonized mitt romney as a predatory capitalist. as a heartless man who even participated in the death of an innocent woman. these people have no shame, none. withbut the worse part about its no one holds them accountable because most people fear the far left. they are afraid of them because they are so vicious. vicious. so here is what i really lament. we are now living in a dishonest culture. the media is totally corrupt in this country it does things that it could never have gotten away with even 10 years ago. there are entire media operations that exist solely to promote ideology. obviously a bad situation that is getting worse. and that's the memo. now, for the top story tonight, reaction with us, barack and hard place duo monica cawley and alan colmes. you enjoy that. >> the lamentations and i expected you to be nashing your teeth and renting your garment. >> bill: when i did that analysis at 8:08 by the way very early on in the election night. did i seem distraught to you in any way, shape or form. >> no. and your analysis w
, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me just say the comments that you have focused on encapsulate the republicans' problems. while pundits have been speculating that
that the tax breaks for him and governor romney should end. i think the tax breaks for anyone in those categories need to end as part of a balanced approach and we need to extend the tax cuts for middle-class families in this country. that is what this argument boils down to. the people spoke. republicans need to listen. by the way, again, if they stayed to not touch the rates, but let's get bill loopholes, press them. -- let's get the loopholes, pressed them -- mortgage interest, charitable contributions, state and local taxes -- press them. education, health care -- they receive help -- out through policy decisions. we do not tax health benefits. the affordable care act will begin to above a certain amount, press people. we will dissolve the fiscal cliff if we put the fence on the table. host: sue, pa. on the independent line. caller: i agree with many of the things i have heard you say in your approach is to taxation, but the real reason i'm calling is we are not discussing the elephant in the room. in pennsylvania, 9% of jobs are in manufacturing. that leaves 91% in services like m
-republican or romney comprised three of them. overall the spending was more on the other side. part of this was allowed unions are allowed to take dues from members now and influence people outside of the union membership. just so people understand these contexts of his question, not that the other side wasn't spending a lot too and in fact more when you add it all up, is that accurate? >> i think the unions made better advantage of a lot of the super pac money channeling into organizing as and voter turnout as opposed to advertising. obama's advertising may through july which nobody really responded to, which in my view defined romney in very negative terms. >> it did. and once you get defined it is tough to unravel that. just to your point it probably did make a big difference, steve because, if super pacs hadn't been out there on the republican side the others would be out there anyway. you would have seen a country not so evenly divided probably because advertising dollars would have mept larger margins in these states. in the end mitt romney loss but in the end it didn't make a difference. i will
and mr. mitt romney, when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced and responsible approach. part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think that every voter out there and understood that that was an important debate. the majority of voters agreed with me. either way, more voters agreed with me on this. we have a clear program that we are going to be serious about deficit reduction, and we have to do it in a balanced way. the only question is are we going to pull the middle-class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and say, here is something we agree on. we don't want the middle-class taxes to go up. let's go ahead and lock them in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good for consumers. it will be good for businesses. it takes the edge off the fiscal cliff. let's also then commit ourselves to the broader package of deficit reduction. that includes entitlement changes and it includes potential tax reform. as well as i am able to look at discretionary spending on that side.

and some individuals like romney plan, then we've got to go back to our base and say, yes, we've got to cut entitlements too because it's got to be part of a deal that has spending cuts at a significant level above the 1 trillion we've already done and revenue. look, unless we do 4 trillion to 5 trillion, we're not doing anything in my judgment that's particularly meaningful. >> walk me through the optics of what we'll see today. grover norquist last night said he thought ceos would be trained seals in front of the white house. does this mean anything until we get to the actual nuts and bolts of friday? >> no, i don't think it does. look, there's a lot of posturing and positioning. you had the president thanking his biggest supporters from his campaign yesterday. you're going to have a bunch of folks in today who certainly will make some good points to the president. ultimately this comes down to is this president willing to lead? is he ready to lead? is he ready to look for consensus? i think that's what the american people want. i do think obviously the president has the right to set the
santorum was the candidate, and michele bachmann as well. it was just so up and down, you know, that's part of the way the democrat system works going state by state and fight for it. there's benefit to that. every voter in new hampshire got a perm visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, herman cain, it forces you to do that, but in a primary, you wouldn't have the opportunity as a voter or the candidates wouldn't have that challenge to have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there's good and bad parts of it, but, yeah, it does create some challenges, no question. >> on the super packs on the republican side spent over $700 million, something like that, and it looks like, you know, aachieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted so where does that leave that system, and what does that say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome. with that much money with no return on it. >> a couple thoughts, one, you help me op this because there's an editorial about it or somebody wrote it for him, he's too important to write his own anymore.
